1. Interview with Ms. Gallagher

On Wednesday 27th September, we Interviewed an EYFS teacher - Shannon Gallagher, Head of Reception and we asked her some questions about her role.

First of all we asked Mrs. Gallagher how many years she has been teaching at BSB. She replied that she has been here for two years. Next, we asked which subject she liked teaching the most? She replied that it was Phonics. Before teaching at BSB she learned languages like Chinese and French. When we asked her which year group she liked teaching, she immediately responded that it had to be Reception because the children still get to play, and we call it continued provision so we have different areas of learning with fun activities and the children don’t even realise they are learning.

As we are Journalists we wondered if she was inspired by anyone.

“Yes”, she replied with a little smile. “My old teachers from my primary school”. Next up we asked if she remembered anything about school when she was the age of her students. She said that she remembered a little from when she was four but probably not too much as she was lost in her memories.

Afterwards we questioned her about what home town she was from. She replied Killy Begs in Ireland. After a while, we asked for if any of her siblings are teachers; none of them are even though she has five siblings. Eventually, we asked her if she has any hobbies and she responded that she likes playing football. Finally, we questioned if she ever played football against her students and she replied that she hadn’t although would like to.
